The Decline and Fall of Waugh

first_imgBright Young Things Odeon George Street Friday 10-Thursday 16 October Stephen Fry’s Bright Young Things spend a lot of time at parties. In fact, they don’t really have much else to do. And going to lots of parties is really rather dreadful you know, and one gets awfully tired of it, and one feels rather like a media whore when one is always on the front page. The main problem facing this film is that lots of people would quite like to spend their time going to parties. Unless, that is, you’re Stephen Fry, who finds it all a bit trying, or Evelyn Waugh whose novel, Vile Bodies, this film is based on. The fact that you emerge from the cinema sympathising with the harsh reality of being young, bright, but really not rich enough to keep yourself in cocaine from week to week is one of the main achievements of this film. In the opening sequence, the camera pans through the kind of red-lit debauchery you really wish you found more of at Oxford before homing in on Emily Mortimer’s Nina: “I’ve never been more bored in my life”. It’s an effective technique; the social whirlwind of the society scenes contrast starkly with moments when the perky jazz music fades. Particularly poignant is when we are left alone in the distinctly unaristocratic apartment of the short-lived Lord Simon Balcairn. The music is replaced by a vitriolic condemnation of the people who sustained and then excluded him as the camera whirls faster and faster over the jiving masses. The party scenes serve as a structure for the earlier part of the film, each bathed in a different light. Indeed the film as a whole is rather beautiful, cleverly using the light of flashbulbs and candles to set scene. Its motifs may not be the most subtle – angels puking onto the hero Adam Symes’ novel and later singing about Jesus as we watch the party hostess snorting coke – but they are visually striking nonetheless. The Bright Young Things are “all to pieces” as the Hon Agatha Runcible points out, but they’re witty enough for enjoyable viewing and are surrounded by a cast of famous British actors. Richard E Grant, Jim Broadbent and Simon Callow all do their best to put on their silliest accents, which is always rather jolly. The main plot concerns Symes’ attempts to marry Nina, an event which is hampered by the continual disappearance of Broadbent’s drunken Major with the cheque that will make his fortune. The moral is that spending your time at parties doesn’t pay and money doesn’t make the world go round, but the film steps back from Waugh’s pessimistic satire towards a soft focus happy ending. Not quite what Evelyn Waugh intended, but if you can’t afford to throw a decent party you could do worse than going to watch Bright Young Things.ARCHIVE: 0th Week MT2003last_img read more

Press release: New rules on gatherings in some parts of Northern England

first_imgThe Health Secretary Matt Hancock has this evening announced that new rules on social gatherings will be introduced in Northern England to stop the spread of COVID-19. These changes will also apply in Leicester city.This is in response to an increasing trend in the number of cases per 100,000 people in the area, and data from Public Health England (PHE) and the Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC) which suggests transmission among households is a key infection pathway in the area.The areas that these changes apply to are: It means people in these areas will not be permitted to mix with other households (apart from those in their support bubbles) in private homes or gardens.Some exemptions will be put in place, including for the vulnerable.The government will sign new regulations to make these changes legally enforceable.The regulations will give local authorities and police forces the powers to enforce these restrictions and more details on these will be set out when the regulations are published.Households may go to hospitality, for instance bars and pubs, but new guidance will make clear that two households should not go to hospitality together.Meanwhile local leaders and government have today agreed a number of changes to local restrictions in other areas.While social gathering restrictions remain in place in Leicester City, the area will benefit from the lifting of restrictions that took place on 4 July in England, and all local restrictions currently in place in the neighbouring borough of Oadby and Wigston will end.It means from Monday 3 August restaurants, cafes, bars and hairdressers in Leicester City can get back to business but leisure centres, gyms and pools will remain closed. In addition, cinemas and museums will open and religious ceremonies will be able to take place.And on Saturday 1 August, Luton will be brought in line with the rest of the country after significant progress has been made in controlling the virus.Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: We’re constantly looking at the latest data on the spread of coronavirus, and unfortunately we’ve seen an increasing rate of transmission in parts of Northern England. We’ve been working with local leaders across the region, and today I chaired a meeting of the Local Action Gold Committee. Based on the data, we decided that in Greater Manchester, parts of West Yorkshire and East Lancashire we need to take immediate action to keep people safe. The restrictions currently in place in Blackburn, announced last Friday, which saw indoor swimming pools, indoor fitness and dance studios, indoor gyms and sports facilities remaining closed, will continue.From Saturday, these leisure facilities will open in Luton, bringing it in line with the rest of the country.We have been working closely with local leaders across Greater Manchester, West Yorkshire and East Lancashire and have made the decision to bring in new restrictions on social gatherings for selected areas.For those preparing to celebrate Eid Al Adha this weekend with friends and family these restrictions will come as a blow but everyone is being urged to follow the new rules and to protect the ones they love from catching coronavirus.Mosques and other places of worship have reopened for prayer and communal worship, but in a different socially distanced and COVID-19 Secure way. This means that while mosques can remain open, many will not able to welcome as many worshippers as before.Anyone with any symptoms (a high temperature, new continuous cough, change or loss to sense of smell or taste) must isolate immediately and get a test for free by going online or ringing 119. Everyone must continue to socially distance and regularly wash their hands to help tackle the virus.Background information The spread is largely due to households meeting and not abiding to social distancing. So from midnight tonight, people from different households will not be allowed to meet each other indoors in these areas. We take this action with a heavy heart, but we can see increasing rates of coronavirus across Europe and are determined to do whatever is necessary to keep people safe. guidance on local restrictions in the north of England guidance on all local restrictions The Greater Manchester area Pendle Hyndburn Burnley Rossendale Blackburn with Darwen Bradford Calderdale Kirklees Leicester Citylast_img read more

Lecture explores U.S. role

first_imgWhat would happen if America ceased to be – if it failed to provide the leadership in the international arena for which it is best known?   Professor Paul Collier, director of the Centre for the Study of African Economies at the University of Oxford, raised these questions and more in his lecture Wednesday titled “International Human Development: Has the U.S. a Leadership Role?” Collier, whose research includes the political economy of democracy and poverty, emphasized the distinct way in which the United States must exert its influence in the world so it may more effectively foster human development. He said the United States must lead by employing soft power, the power of influence and example, as opposed to the traditional notion of hard, physical power. With its “power of example, of imitation, [soft power] is much, much stronger than people appreciate,” Collier said. The U.S. should also use soft power to communicate particular values that have empowered America but are lacking in Africa, he said. Motivation is an important aspect of any healthy, vibrant society, including the United States, Collier said. Prosperous nations and successful organizations empower individuals to make a leap of identity, internalize objectives and become motivated. Africa, he said, suffers from a chronic “failure of motivation.” “If you look at the public sector across Africa – schools, health clinics – the fundamental problem is the astonishingly low productivity of the labor force because the labor force is not motivated,” he said. Collier defined another pivotal value, neutral regard, as two-pronged: it empowers individuals to achieve a cooperative solution to problems and allows for redistribution from the better-off to the worse-off in society. Here too, he said, the developing world struggles and must look to the developed world as an example. “Quite systematically, there are big variances, big differences, between the ability of different societies to reach [a] cooperative outcome,” he said. “It is much more difficult for poorer societies than wealthy societies.” Collier emphasized the power of integrity, which has reeled in the shadows of dictatorships and crumbling democratic governments. “The poorest countries have enormous problems with high levels of corruption, low levels of integrity in their government,” he said. But Collier said the virtue of stewardship – one that even Americans have not fully embraced– is one of the most pressing. “Stewardship is the central task of the present generation of African decision makers,” he said, “in the next decade there is going to be a resource boom.” Collier praised American society as an exemplar, but stressed the urgency of communicating its values to a world greatly in need. “[The developing world] needs role models of high integrity,” he said, “which is something that America has been able to deliver dramatically over the years.”last_img read more

Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging

first_imgThirty youth participated in the 2020 Georgia 4-H State Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging Competition sponsored by the Georgia Cotton Commission on Dec. 12. In previous years, this contest was held in person at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, Georgia. This year, the contest was held in a virtual format.The Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging Competition is part of the Georgia 4-H Healthy Living Program. This competitive judging contest teaches 4-H’ers to make wise consumer decisions and educates participants on cotton as an agricultural commodity in Georgia. The competition offers youth the chance to build critical thinking, public speaking and life skills in consumer economics.“Consumer Judging teaches youth how to think critically and make smart consumer decisions,” said Courtney Brown, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension 4-H specialist. “The skills learned in preparation for this competitive event are real-life skills that youth will continue to use throughout their lives when making purchases.” The state contest consists of two competition areas: judging classes and advertisements. In the judging class portion of the competition, 4-H’ers are required to judge four classes of consumer items or services and rank items based on provided details, factors and scenarios, as well as provide oral reasoning for their selections. The advertisements portion requires 4-H’ers to promote cotton and its use through a presentation.Prior to the state competition, 4-H’ers from ninth through 12th grades competed in virtual district-level contests. The first and second place senior teams at each district area contest continued on to compete at the State Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging Competition. Although the contest was held online, all contest elements were maintained. Cotton presentations were prerecorded and judged virtually. Participants examined the classes and scenarios using a timed platform, Qualtrics, and presented their reasoning to the judges live via Zoom.The first place Senior Team winners and High Overall Individual will receive Georgia Master 4-H’er status, be honored at Georgia State 4-H Congress in July in Atlanta, and represent Georgia in the Consumer Decision Making contest at Western National Roundup in January 2021 in Denver, Colorado. The second place team will also travel to Denver to represent Georgia 4-H in the Western National Roundup Family and Consumer Science Skill-A-Thon or Family and Consumer Sciences Knowledge Bowl.The winners of the 2020 Georgia 4-H Cotton Boll and Consumer Judging Competition are:TeamsFirst place: Ashley Braddy, Liam Jay, Timothy Lord and Lauren Wixson – Ben Hill CountySecond place: Liz Pridgon, Sydney Pridgon, Dana Wells and Amare Woods – Tift CountyThird place: Sierra Arnold, Lydia Belflower, Veronica Lee and Lucy Weigert – Bleckley CountyIndividualsHigh Overall Individual: Liam Jay – Ben Hill CountyHigh Presentation: Liam Jay – Ben Hill CountyHigh Placing and Reasons: Ashley Braddy – Ben Hill CountyGeorgia 4-H empowers youth to become true leaders by developing necessary life skills, positive relationships and community awareness.

Banks allowed a deferral of payment of all credit obligations for up to 12 months

first_imgThe Croatian Association of Banks held a meeting with representatives of the tourism sector (HUT, KUH, UPUHH, OMH) at which the measures of banks to help the tourism sector were presented. The right measure that the entire tourism sector has been waiting for and which is the only assumption that it will survive until the spring of 2021 Banks have enabled citizens and entrepreneurs engaged in tourism or their business related to tourism to defer payment of all credit obligations in lasting up to 12 months, in accordance with the guidelines of the European Banking Supervision Agency and the existing regulatory framework of the Croatian National Bank. Šime Klarić, President of the National Association of Family and Small Hotels, said that the encouraging news for all small and family hoteliers was the decision of banks regarding the rescheduling of long-term loans with a moratorium on principal repayment until June 30.06.2021, XNUMX to all tourism companies. “Small hoteliers do not have their own reserves to cover the drop in traffic and large losses in 2020 and until the summer of 2021, when we expect a more serious return of tourists. Therefore, this decision of the banks is of crucial importance for the survival of small hotels, which, in addition to bank funds, have also invested large personal or family funds and property. Along with this decision on long-term loan rescheduling, as well as the existing and expected measures of the Government, it gives us new energy for opening family hotels and quality reception of even the smallest number of guests who are ready to come to Croatia. The attitude of banks that they want to keep the hotel and tourism industry alive and healthy by the summer of 2021 proves that Croatian tourism is a solid cluster in which all stakeholders respect and hold each other and that everyone believes in a bright future for Croatian tourism. It was pointed out at the meeting that a stable banking system in Croatia will play a key role in the economic recovery, so banks are already providing new loans to preserve the liquidity of entrepreneurs in cooperation with domestic and international institutions (HBOR, HAMAG, EIF). In the forthcoming period, banks will continue to strive to provide additional sources of financing and favorable guarantee schemes, so that business entities have sufficient liquidity and the possibility of favorable financing.center_img “During this crisis, banks proved that they are ready to support the Croatian economy and implement economic measures in accordance with the best practices in Europe. We held a meeting with representatives of the tourism sector in order to be able to hear all the proposals and present the programs that banks specifically implement for the sectors and citizens most affected by the epidemic. We are extremely glad that entrepreneurs have recognized the programs and measures of banks, and I believe that with joint efforts and cooperation we will be able to respond to all the challenges that lie ahead. ” he pointed out Director of the Croatian Association of Banks, Zdenko Adrović, Depending on the capabilities and needs of clients, regular interest rates can be settled during the moratorium, according to the existing repayment plan or, which is currently the best option for tourism entrepreneurs, the loan deadline can be extended to match monthly loan installments. inflow dynamics.last_img read more

Komnas HAM calls for stop to job creation omnibus bill deliberations

first_imgTopics : In a meeting at the House on Tuesday, the House and labor unions agreed to form a team with members of the working committee of the bill, with the aim of finding common ground for several changes to the 2003 Labor Law included in the bill. The team was initiated by the House deputy speaker and Gerindra Party member Sufmi Dasco Ahmad.”We try to hear all perspectives. The bill should be for all of us, not only for specific groups” Dasco said.Read also: Omnibus bill could hurt labor, environmental protections: World BankThe labor issues have not yet been discussed at Baleg.So far in the deliberations, the ruling Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) has been at loggerheads with its political partner in the government coalition, the Golkar Party, following concerns that the bill will further expand the powers of the presidency.The PDI-P, the constituents of which are mostly from the working class, has been reluctant to pursue the bill, which has met strong opposition from labor unions that are set to hold a massive rally in front of the House compound in Senayan, Central Jakarta at the beginning of the next House session on Friday.Golkar, on the other hand, has been a major supporter of the bill, which is one of the flagship programs of Coordinating Economic Minister Airlangga Hartarto, who is also the party’s chairman.”The job creation bill will be a breakthrough amid the global economic crisis due to COVID-19,” Golkar lawmaker Azis Syamsuddin said. “The state needs to accelerate the economy by creating jobs and investment for the welfare of the Indonesian people.” Read also: Business groups say omnibus bill could boost worker productivityHe added that the bill could also threaten environmental protections and expressed his concern that the bill’s criminal provisions would unfairly benefit the rich.“Prison sentences only apply if administrative penalties are not paid,” he said.The omnibus bill, which is one of Jokowi’s main priorities for his second term, is being deliberated by the House’s Legislation Body (Baleg). center_img The National Commission on Human Rights (Komnas HAM) has urged President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo and the House of Representatives to stop the deliberation of the omnibus bill on job creation, saying the bill has the potential to violate human rights.”We recommend that the President and the House stop the deliberation of the bill to respect, protect and fulfill the human rights of all Indonesians,” Komnas HAM chairman Ahmad Taufan Damanik said in a virtual press conference on Thursday.Ahmad said that after studying the bill and conducting a series of discussions with civil society groups and lawmakers, the commission had found several areas of concern, including the potential rolling back of workers’ protections and expansion of central government powers.last_img read more
